The Greek city and port of Volos is located in Thessaly of mainland Greece and is around 325 km to the north of Athens and 215 km to the south of Thessaloniki. The town's port is the region's only access to the sea and the town is the capital of the Magnesia region. Volos' port is one of the newest ports in Greece with many of its buildings being constructed after 1955, when an earthquake destroyed much of what was there before. The University of Thessaly is located in the city which is also a centre for manufacturing, services and tourism for the region. The city played an important role in the 2004 Olympic Games as since then has also hosted other athletic events such as the European Athletics Championships. The city also hosted the 7th International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics in July and August 2013.
The city is regarded as one of the most beautiful in Greece and its long history can be seen in its buildings. The many mansions, municipal buildings, museums, early 20th century industrial buildings and lovely churches all combine to make Volos a place worth visiting.
From the city's port, ferry services depart to Skiathos, Alonissos, Glossa and Skopelos.
The Greek island of Alonnisos lies in the Aegean Sea and forms one of the Northern Sporades group of islands along with Skopelos and Skiathos. Skopelos is only 3 km to the east of Alonnisos. It is the most remote of the Northern Sporades group of islands and is home to the National Marine Park of the Northern Sporades which is a haven for rare birds, dolphins and the Mediterranean Monk Seal. The island is surrounded by small islands that are scattered around the archipelago and its interior is rugged. It is the perfect island for visitors looking for peach and tranquillity with lovely things to do including taking a leisurely stroll through the pine forests, olive groves and orchards.
visitors arriving by ferry will be greeted by the picturesque harbour and island capital of Patitiri. The town has a beautiful stone paved waterfront and takes its name from the wine presses used by the locals. The old island capital is Hora (or Old Village) and provides visitors with lovely views of the sea, stone houses with pretty little courtyards, narrow alleys and a number of churches that capture the spirit of a typical Greek island town.
From the port there is ferry and hydrofoil service from Patitiri to Volos, Agios Konstantinos, and Thessaloniki on the mainland and to the islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros.
